the ideology that the republican party embraced post-2008, which is poisonous to an election. paul ryan budget, they're not running on the paul ryan budget. i don't know why they put him on the ticket. >> oh, my god. >> you can do what mitt romney has done. stay away from that stuff as much as you can and you can run this message of, hey, i'm the protest vehicle. if you're unhappy where the economy is, vote out obama. that's the better calculation. we're just finding out that's not enough, but the alternative is worse. >> the alternative is no real alternative because i don't know any republican that toed the far right line in the primaries would have got through the primaries. i looked at some of the positions mitt romney was forced to take. he had to say he would vote no on a 10-1 spending deal. he talked about self-deport addition as an immigration solution. he embraced the paul ryan budget calling it marvelous and medicare vouchers and personhood which is so extreme it failed on the ballot in mississippi, arguably the most pro-life state in the country. one that hurt him in ohio is his emb

" "law and order" "saving private ryan." "pursuit of happiness" and the pro life films "juno" and "knocked up." you can make a conservative themed film -- >> it has to be a good piece of art. >> right. the problem a lot of times talking about is exactly, and i agree with almost everything just said. there are times when the politics of a film essentially doesn't matter or it can communicate in a lot of different levels, they have to concentrate on craft. most of the time these conservative and christian themed films are just not well made. >> andrew, didn't take any alcoholic birjs or lapses in judgment to get you here today i hope from salon.com we both work there. thanks for joining us. >>> the new list of schools that aren't just good for students but the future of america and for once, harvard is not getting top honors. guest which cyclist alma mater is on the list? not mine. and you learned something along the way. this is the age of knowing what you're made of. so, why let erectile dysfunction get in your way? talk to your doctor about viagra. 20 million men already hav
